ASP recently announced this Tactical Response kit. They say it’s a portable, turnkey, instantly-deployable system of critical equipment for riots and other crowd control incidents.
Altogether, the kit has a retail value of $360 but ASP is offering it at a bundled price of $249, making them more economic for the agencies who employ them.
So, what’s in the kit, and how does it help?
Here’s how ASP describes the kit:
The the ASP Tactical Response Kit—a prepackaged solution containing a supply of disposable restraints, a retractable baton, carrying cases and related accessories. The kit is designed as a portable and cost-effective way for every officer and vehicle to be prepared for crowd control and riot situations.
The Tactical Response Kit includes six ASP Tri-Fold disposable restraints, which are not only essential for mass arrest scenarios, but also important in minimizing transmission of surface-borne pathogens. The Tri-Folds in the kit are fully assembled and ready for instant deployment: two are pre-loaded into the included carrying case, and the remaining four are pre-assembled, secured with storage bands, and clipped to the included carabiner. A Scarab safety cutter is also provided; this compact tool removes the restraints quickly and precisely, without the risk of an exposed blade. The Scarab stores in its own pocket on the side of the restraint case.
The kit also includes a Talon Infinity 60cm retractable baton. ASP’s latest and most advanced baton, the Talon Infinity extends from its compact, 10-inch stowed length to a full 24 inches, making it suitable for riot and crowd control use. Its push button release allows the Talon to be retracted quickly and smoothly, directly into the included Envoy Scabbard. Also supplied with the baton is a pre-installed Grip Cap, which improves retention and leverage.
The entire, twelve-piece system—available with either black or yellow Tri-Fold Restraints—comes in a durable, slim-profile storage and transport bag that takes up minimal space in a patrol car. The total retail value of the components is $360, but it is offered at a bundled MSRP of just $249, to make it budget-friendly for agencies to deploy.
